Whoopi Goldberg, 68, reveals reason why she plans to stay single as she opens up on 'going to bed alone'

Whoopi Goldberg, 68, reveals reason why she plans to stay single as she opens up on 'going to bed alone'

The Oscar-winning actress isn't interesting in finding 'the One'

While many celebrities prefer to remain tight-lipped about their relationship status, possibly finding it embarrassing to discuss their love life - or lack thereof! - actress Whoopi Goldberg is single and PROUD!

Speaking on the much-loved chat-show The View (essentially America's answer to Loose Women...), the 68-year-old star alluded to her lonely-heart relationship status, but insisted she wouldn't have it any other way.

Discussing expert relationship advice, the Oscar-winning movie star initiated a conversation with her co-panellists about whether it's acceptable to go to bed when embroiled in a spat with your partner.

"A married couple of psychologists who wrote the book 'Fight Right: How Successful Couples Turn Conflict into Connection', they say it's okay to go to bed angry," Whoopi tells her co-stars.

"Because it gives you time to take a breath and think things over and understand someone better - " she went on, having to stop after bursting out laughing.

"That tickles you?" one of her gal pals is then seen asking her, to which Whoopi replies: "That just tickles me, you know?

"That's why I go to bed alone! I don't have to worry about it, I don't care whose mad!"

Though she didn't confirm her relationship status, her outburst comes a couple of years after she admitted she wished she'd never gotten married.

Speaking on Loose Women back in 2018, the Sister Act frontwoman - who has previously tied the knot three times - claimed she's actually 'not a big believer in weddings and marriage'.

"But there’s something wonderful about seeing a couple in love and they’re in a carriage," she surprised viewers.

Talking about Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank's nuptials at the time, Whoopi went on: "There's something wonderful about that and the [royal] tradition.

"We don't really have those kind of things, but for us across the way there's something great about it. Often if you’ve been married a long time, things change.

"The only way I could be married to anyone ever again is if they lived in another country, they could come and visit... I'm not cut out for it."

The Ghost favourite was previously married to drug counsellor Alvin Martin from 1973 to 1979, before going on to wed cinematographer David Claessen from 1986 to 1988 and then union organiser Lyle Trachtenberg from 1994 to 1995.

She has also enjoyed several high-profile relationships in the spotlight, playwright David Schein, camera operator Edward Gold and actors Frank Langella (Captain America), Timothy Dalton (License to Kill), and Ted Danson (The Good Place).

Speaking on the ITV talk show six years ago, however, she claimed she wouldn't be setting her sights on 'Mr Right' anytime soon.

"I'm in my 60s. Remember how people treated women who were not married?" she asked viewers.

"You got treated rather poorly, they talked about it like there was something wrong.

"I think more people have discovered that it's not for them. You want to have somebody in your life saying, 'Where were you?' I was curious. I don't want them asking me!"

Whoopi went on: "There's something where you see and you think, 'I've got to have that, I don't care what else happens this month, that is coming to my house.' Then there's love, like, 'Oh my goodness! Hi, like, can I talk to you?' I don't know what else to do.

"At times it leads to the same thing, which is, "I don't want to share," and that's OK to say."
